This Easy Quiche Recipe starts with a premade pie crust but no one has to know! It’s loaded with ham, cheese and green onions and is the perfect easy breakfast or dinner!

You can really add anything you want to this easy quiche recipe — other vegetables, different cheeses or seasonings — but ham and cheese is our favorite way to do it up. I don’t know about you, but we love eggs for any meal of the day here. We’ll take any excuse to enjoy them for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and this easy quiche recipe definitely bridges the gap between all three. I love keeping my quiche recipes easy, and serving them up with lovely fruit or a beautiful fresh salad!

There are so many variations on a classic quiche recipe, but I wanted to keep things super simple this time around. We’re starting with a premade, refrigerated pie crust and filling it with all the good stuff!

You can definitely use a premade, frozen pie crust that has already been pressed into a disposable pan if you want to make this quiche even easier, but I like to roll mine out and bake it in one of my own pie plates. That way no one has to know about the shortcuts we took!

Tips for Making This Easy Quiche Recipe:

  • This recipe really couldn’t be any easier — start with a premade pie crust, and fill it with your favorite things, plus some eggs and milk.
  • A lot of quiche recipes you will find have precooked ingredients and require an extra pan plus additional prep time. We are using cooked, cubed ham and green onions in this recipe to ensure this easy breakfast quiche recipe comes together as quickly as possible!
  • Don’t forget to keep an eye on the quiche as it bakes — you don’t want the crust getting too brown on top as the eggs cook! If necessary, cover the outside ring of the crust with a bit of foil to prevent it from browning further.
  • If you aren’t a fan of the traditional pie crust, try making a Puff Pastry Quiche or these Easy Mini Quiche made with wonton wrappers!

Can You Make a Quiche Ahead of Time?

You bet! Once baked, cool the quiche for up to two hours on the counter, and then refrigerate. To reheat, cover the quiche with foil and bake for about at 325F (until just heated). Cooling it before refrigerating helps keep the crust a bit crisper.

How Do You Make a Crustless Quiche:

If you’re looking for a gluten-free alternative, or you’re just not a big fan of crust (hey, we all have our own preferences!), you can absolutely skip the crust and just pour the egg mixture right into the pan to make this into a crustless quiche recipe. It’s that easy!

Just don’t forget to grease the pie plate first because eggs can be tough to get out after they’re cooked!

Since you won’t need to watch the crust for signs of doneness, you will just bake a crustless quiche until the eggs are completely set all through the center.

  1. Baking temp of 375 is too high. 325-350 depending on your oven will yield no overdone too with a runny centre.

    1. Once baked, cool the quiche for up to two hours on the counter, and then refrigerate. To reheat, cover the quiche with foil and bake for about at 325F (until just heated, about 15 minutes). Cooling it before refrigerating helps keep the crust a bit crisper.

      If you would like to make ahead and bake later, I’d suggest adding the egg mixture to the crust immediately before baking.

    1. The crust is not pre baked. If you are adding pancetta in addition to the ham, you may want to reduce the salt. Enjoy the quiche Christina!

      1. Thank you! I replaced the ham with pre-cooked thick cut applewood smoked bacon yum! I cut back on the salt just a smidge. Added red bell pepper and used freshly grated aged white cheddar and goat cheese!! It was delicious thank you!!5 stars

  2. I love this quiche it is soooooooo easy and its so good. I’ve added onion and peppers to it, yum. If your thinking of trying this recipe, do it, you won’t go wrong.5 stars

  3. Made this according to directions except pre-baked thawed crust at 375 for 10 min and omitted salt. Used a deep dish pie crust and it filled it completely, then baked for 40 min. Beautifully lightly browned. It was so easy and delicious! Thanks for the great recipe!5 stars

  4. Mine was a deep dish so it required 9 eggs and a longer cooking time. We love well done crust (whew)!
    Used potatoes, broccoli, ham, scallions and cheddar cheese. Serving with side salads.

  5. Haven’t tried the recipe yet but do I need a deep dish pie crust or regular? I’m leaning toward deep dish as there’s 6 eggs. TIA

  6. Try to make quiche for the first time. Very easy and came out pretty good. But next time will reduce the salt, a little too salty for me. Thank you for recipe.5 stars

  7. I dont know why i waited so long to try making this… It was DELISH & My Hubby loved it! Next time ill try adding some broccoli florets. So good! Thank you for sharing :)5 stars

  8. This is a very flexible recipe. Easy to adapt using ingredients you already have in your kitchen. Substitute cooked chicken for other meats for example. I use it often.

  9. Fresh eggs from the chickens and $8 worth of frozen pie crust, meat, milk, and cheese from Aldi. And it was delicious, quick, and easy. The kids and I really enjoyed it, worth making and will make again!5 stars
